Anson Williams is beginning a new phase in his career. According to the Ojai Valley News, the former star of the enduring comedy Happy Days declared his intention to run for mayor of Ojai, California.
On June 28, during the public city council meeting, Williams, 72, stated that Ojai needs “leadership that inspires a collaborative team.”
The publication also noted that on July 18, candidates for all positions can officially declare their candidacy by “drawing papers at the City Clerk’s Office for contests within the city, or with the County Clerk for races outside the city.”

Henry Winkler, who played Fonzie on the show from 1974 to 1984, and Williams’ old Happy Days co-star, openly endorsed Williams.
Winkler, 76, tweeted on Tuesday, “You have my vote,” in response to KABC-TV reporter George Pennacchio’s tweet on William’s announcement.
Williams would be following in the footsteps of other famous people who have entered politics, including Sonny Bono, the mayor of Palm Springs, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who served as governor of California, and Clint Eastwood, who was mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California for two years, and Clint Eastwood.
Williams was nominated for a Golden Globe during his 11-season tenure on the 1950s and 1960s-set television series Happy Days. The television show also included Ron Howard, Marion Ross, and Tom Bosley in addition to Winkler.
After the sitcom ended in 1984, he switched to directing and worked on shows including The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Beverly Hills, 90210, Melrose Place, and Beverly Hills, 90210.
